WORD General Manager George Cushanick said low use on the Guadalupe this summer led to the decision. “We’re not even expecting that big of a weekend on Labor Day,” Cushanick said. “Due to the low utilization of the river, we thought it was necessary to do this. Its fiscally responsible for us to cut back these costs.” A pair of contractors, outfitter Paul Rich of Mountain Breeze and Stryker Saunders, clean sections of the river. Cushanick said WORD’S health and sanitation committee decided the cleanup with the low use was not cost-effective. The annual Friends of the River cleanup will still take place on Sept. 16, Cushanick said. WORD cleans the river from Farm-to-Market Road 306 down to Gruene. www.herald- toss has with a Wireless Phone from Moya Communications Donate $20 to SPECIAL OLYMPICS and receive a •FREE Nokia 5120/5160 Phone •FREE Weekend* on select rate plans But Cup, Iak Bud, Ok Charuk- $49 Phone Co se, Git ChARUR- $29 Southwestern Bell AUTHORIZED WIRELESS AGENT NEW BRAUNFELS, TX 211A TRADt CENTfR DRIVE 830.620.6692 'Some lestiictiom Apply See store for details ~^=3l IHI august special    ii AIR DUCTS CLEANED -1 VR FREE FILTERS CARPET & ORIENTAL RUG CLEANINGS ARE OUR SPECIALTY 606-7384 - 1-888-736-1824 • Ortontol Hoe Cleaning • Drapery k Mini Blind Cleaning • Carpel Cleaning ■ Furniture Cleaning ■ Aw Duct Cleaning ■ Fire A Water Damage Restoration OFFICE - 210 TRADECENTER DRIUE FREE ESTIMATES - 24 HR EMERGENCY SERVICE • Jim Scheele Jr. • Mark Dingeldein • Sharia King • Bobbie Landrum • Pattie Tippit • Gary O.
